I find the overwhelming support he has on this site really surprising.
I know that the dom was a mess he inherited, but before the election (and after) he was always saying how he would tear it down, and now he’s giving Farglory an offset, which makes me feel that he isn’t any different than other scumbag politicians you see here.
There’s also been quite a few forced abolishment cases since he became incumbent. Now that’s not exclusive to Taipei, but it shows that he’s not that much different than the others like you make him to be.
Plus the Universiade opening mess, the The Voice China mess, and his frequent distasteful remarks (eg. “It’s easier to rape than seduce”, which sounds an awful lot like Duterte), I find it impossible to hold him in high regards.
I’m not saying that he’s worse than other politicians in particular. There are deep greens who hate him with a boiling passion and consider him a puppet of Xi JinPing and I don’t agree with them. I’m just saying that I don’t think he’s standing out. At least not in a good way.
